First up, Morning Show co-host and longtime co-worker of Shelley, Larry Richert. He was able to give Mangino a unique perspective into working with Shelley and let listeners in on a few secrets.
“You seem like a healthy man to me and that will probably continue because we can eliminate any threat of any germs in the studio or near your, what we call the talk show host bull pen,” Richert said.
Richert joked that he didn’t have enough time to help Mangino learn the best way to handle working with Shelley, but he did promise that she will bring a balanced view from a woman’s perspective. He said while he may make jokes, he is thrilled to have the two together on the Afternoon News.
Next up, all the way from his pilgrimage to Greece, Bishop David Zubik. The Bishop knows what it takes to work best with your partner and always seems to give the best advice for any situation you face. He was able to bring some clarity to the show with his thoughts on what Mangino and Shelley need to do to make the Afternoon News a success.
“Well, you know, I think always speak the truth and do it with the very best talents that the both of you have,” Zubik said. “I think that would be my advice, be people of integrity that you already are. Speak the truth about the news you are going to present that would be what I’m sure will happen any way, but that’s my hope and prayer for you.”READ MORE: Allegheny County Employee Fired For Refusing COVID-19 Vaccine Says He's Preparing A Legal Fight

Who knows more about putting a winning team together better than their next guest? Mangino and Shelley talked with Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert about the off-season, next season and even got their very own locker room pep talk! Colbert broke down his game plan for the Afternoon News.
“I think it should be a good intellectual battle and challenge the audience and challenge you guys. We always challenge each other to be better than you were yesterday and better tomorrow than you were today,” Colbert said.
